Almost everyone has a “dream-car” Most of us would never have a chance to purchase the car we really want. From the other side, some are that lucky,they can purchase 1,2,3 or more dream cars and enjoy super rides. And that’s how it is. But what really make me sad, very sad-is to see all those abandoned cars around Dubai. There is a story that in 2008 when the crises started, over 60.000 cars were left near to the airport and some of them had keys inside. People were not able to pay car-loans and they had no choice but to leave the car, catch the flights and never come back. And believe me, there was amount of super cars. Ferrari Enzo (limited Edition). Porsche, Lamborghini, BMW M6, X5, Jaguar, Audi and much more…
Actually, nothing much to say. Photo says 1000 of words. I was there around in the hotel lobby when lady came to pay for her room, Penthouse rented for few days. I use to see many times that people paying “big money” by their credit cards, butfirst time to see that big amount of money to be paid by cash. And I was not surprised, I worked in that hotel few years and sow millions going around ( 5*, 400 rooms, for EID or New Year room is not less than 500 USD per night),It’s Dubai, but when I saw the way this lady throw money on the desk, I was like wt*. I’m probably working, hmmm, big time for that amount. I mean someone earn that much for entire life in Bosnia, Serbia, Africa ,,,also in UK and USA I’m sure some people never see that much money.
And she was just like, don’t know. when you go to the shop and buy chocolate. You know, like it’s nothing, it’s just paper.
And then I started thinking. I become sad. I was thinking what if this amount is given to 10 different families. Man their entire life would change. They could eat, go to school, do some regular stuff which the are not able to do because they have no food, no water, no money…
Yeah. A night in Penthouse it’s 15.000 AED/Night (3000 Euro exactly), and that lady, she booked for 9 nights. Man, it’s almost 30.000 Euro.
So let’s check this way. Aprox. Salary in Serbia, Bosnia, Ukraine and many “second line” countries in Europe is 400 Euro a Month. Yes.
So that people need to work aprox. 6 years for this amount. And they have to live from that money, eat, send kids to the school, pay taxes, medicine, bills… My God.
Imagine India,Nepal oramount, as per my Indian friend, he need 13 years to earn that much money. 13 years!
And she will just sleep in the room for 9 nights, even she lives just 45 minutes somewhere away in big villa.
Look, I’m nit judging people who spend that money, not judging this lady, but just thinking loud and putting that things here. It’s just not fer.
They have, they can…But,…no but, that’s how it is….
